Last year, RAGBRAI cruised through our town! We were encouraged to create items for display around our town square that had something to do with bicycles... Perhaps using bicycle parts. Say no more, I thought at the time! I took inspiration from the above garden fairy to create my Garden Praying Mantis! lol. I will post a photo of my sculpture at the end of this post.
This is a view of the walkway (below) that leads around Central Gardens.
Below is a little recirculating stream.
I do enjoy a pond with Lily pads!
This is a beautiful spot that has become a popular spot for weddings.
Okay. Here's "my" Garden Praying Mantis. She stood outdoors downtown all summer last year. She was the result of my participation in the annual fund-raiser for our local Art Association. She was purchased by a local citizen and I know she's enjoying her new home! :-)
